About the Author

Morris Gleitzman was born in Lincolnshire and moved to Australia in his teens. He worked as a paperboy, a shelf-stacker, a frozen chicken de-froster, an assistant to a fashion designer and more before taking a degree in Professional Writing at Canberra College and becoming a writer. He has written for TV, stage, newspapers and magazines but is best-known for his hugely succesful children's books including Two Weeks with the Queen, Bumface and Once.


Gr 3-5-Wilton, a fat, outcast worm, and a parasitic microbe named Algy, befriend each other while inside a human body in this humorous tale by Morris Gleitzman. Wilton is on a mission to find other like worms and a place to fit in. Algy is trying to save the human world that he and the other parasites live in. Their journey together takes them outside the human body, into the body of a dog, and back to the human girl to wage war against killer fungi. The author reads the story with feeling, showing the characters' emotions through the changes in his voice. Primitive sounding music is played briefly between the chapters. This quirky fantasy is sure to attract fans of the Captain Underpants series by Dav Pilkey (Scholastic) and other gross humor series.-Cynthia Grabke, Thayer Public Library, Braintree, MA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
